This is a version of the sport that is played on hard surfaces, like cement or asphalt, and in sneakers. Depending on the level of intensity, often the only piece of equipment for players other than the goalie may be just a stick. However, sticks used for the game on ice are unsuited for this environment: blades will splinter prematurely due to friction with the pavement. Instead, the typical street hockey stick has a wooden shaft and a plastic blade that can be replaced after excessive wear or breakage.

The standard puck will not slide on the street, so special pucks have been developed that will perform better in this setting. More often, players will use a special hollow street hockey ball that will not bounce very much.

Some merchants specialize in gear for street hockey or carry it in tandem with ice hockey equipment.
